Only a Spark!

The church I went to as a boy has many memories for me. One of them not only special in that it kind of went along with James 3:6 (NAS)

6 And the tongue is a fire, the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell.

My cousin was singing with the youth group a song called “Pass it on” which starts out “it only takes a spark to get a fire going” but she must have been daydreaming at that particular moment because she sang out nice and loud for everyone to hear “It only takes a spark to start a forest fire” her face was so red I thought the fire was in her.

But just as the scripture says see what great a fire a little spark kindleth!  It’s true only a spark can start any size fire! The tongue is a fire and if we aren’t careful it will start a terrible blaze in our home, our church even our community! Lives can be totally ruined by one little spark!
